Surname meaning for "Nye"

English (southeastern): topographic name arising from a misdivision of Middle English atten (e)ye which means either ‘at the river’ or ‘at the island’, from Old English ea ‘river’ and eg ‘island’ respectively. Both these words were feminine in Old English, and so should have been preceded only by Middle English atter (see Rye), but distinctions of gender ceased to be carefully maintained in the Middle English period.
